When I switch an expensive oven on, I like to get my money’s worth. I cooked Sunday lunch, chicken and some pork slices in a barbeque sauce.
Tonight, I cut the sticky pork into cubes, cooked a half cup of rice, chopped up some limp bottom of the fridge veggies and some carrots and beans I had left over from yesterday.
It might seem odd, but I create leftovers just by cooking ahead. I’ll now go back to the fridge and freezer and will cook again on Wednesday to see us through until the end of the week. It’s a busy time of year and getting ahead means I can have a few restful evenings……..and catch up on ‘the tour’ daily highlights.
I also can’t remember throwing food away, I’m mean, who does that?
I thought I’d add a couple of handy housework hints.
Have a quick clean up everyday
After washing up, I soak the dish cloth, scrubbers and sponges in some water with a tiny squirt of bleach. The cooker and surfaces get wiped down, the floor is scrubbed and mopped. As its done daily, my kitchen and dining room clean takes less than five minutes.
